Laura Blackley & The Wildflowers with Desdimona7pm & 9pm - $5 Entry
LAURA BLACKLEY & THE WILDFLOWERS – Laura Blackley, Ian Harrod, Dorsey Parker, Gabe Rohmann make the core group called The Wildflowers. Its rock and roll jamming folk music with both originals and covers. Ian Harrod and Laura Blackley sing and write songs, Dorsey shreds the lead and Gabe is a solid as a rock drummer. Most of all they have a blast playing together and it shows. Its always a dancing good time with The Wildflowers.
Laura Blackley is a singer, songwriter and purveyor of high lonesome Appalachian blues and soul. She was an on-air host and producer for seven years at WNCW 88.7 FM in Spindale, NC, spotlighting regional music, women in roots music, and bluegrass and old-time. She currently works (in addition to her gig schedule) as a Teaching Artist with Musicworks!, a program that utilizes music and musicianship to teach life skills to young children.
Opening the show @ 7pm is Desdimona – a hot Folk group born of whisky and smoke on a rotting back porch in Grimes County, Texas. Through the oaks and pines, the sounds of banjo and guitar were heard laboring under the weight of the words they carried. They were the voices of Torin Sloan Franklin and Robert Chance Herrera whose dark harmonies told of great pain and booze-fueled jealousy, longing for redemption and the one who got away.
